Robert Lewandowski scored his 15th goal in 16 league games as Bayern Munich beat Cologne to move nine points clear at the top of the Bundesliga.

Lewandowski now has 21 goals in all competitions this season.

Cologne, meanwhile, are without a win and are now 13 points from safety.

“You can’t attack against every opponent like we did in the second half – we have to do more.”

Bayern have won 13 of their 14 games since Jupp Heynckes replaced Carlo Ancelotti as coach at the start of October.

The Ogun State Police Command, has arrested a 29-year-old driving instructor, for allegedly raping and killing a National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, member, serving in Abeokuta, Modupe Taiyese.

The Commissioner of Police in the state, Ahmed Iliyasu, told journalists at the scene of the crime in Abule Ayo area on Thursday that the suspect had confessed to the crime.

Iliyasu said prior to the arrest of the suspect, the Coordinator of the NYSC in the state, John Okon, had complained to the command about a missing corps member in the state.

He said, “We went for a powerful technical screening of fact left behind by the last person she contacted, who is the suspect; we are able to arrest him.

“We are able to uncover this nefarious act and he led us to this place and confessed.

“Technically, the information led to one person, an indigene of Uromi in Edo, who was teaching this innocent corps member, Taiyese Modupe, how to drive a car.

“The man tactically and deceitfully convinced her on Saturday evening that her driving permit was ready.

“She decided to answer his call and he cleverly and deceitfully apprehended the lady and brought her down to this forest where he had a forceful and unlawful carnal knowledge of her. Thereafter, he strangled her to death.”

The CP also said the police tracked the suspect, following some passport photographs found at the scene of the crime.

“The passport photographs of the suspect were found at the scene of the incident which is a remarkable evidence of crime,” he said.

President Buhari Takes Care Of His Cows Than Nigerians – Governor’s Aide

An aide to the Akwa Ibom governor has accused Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari of abandoning the people to economic hardship and fuel crisis, while giving more care to his cows.

Filling stations across Akwa Ibom, for instance, now sell fuel at N170 against the government approved price of N145.

Governor Udom Emmanuel’s media aide, Essien Ndueso, on Thursday posted on Facebook, photos of Mr. Buhari’s recent visit to his ranch in Daura. He said of the photos, Today, we are in an administration that cows fare better than human beings.

Apparently mocking the president, Mr. Ndueso said, “If the cost of grass were to increase, or if anyone were to temper with the comfort of these cows, I am sure Baba would come back and take urgent actions.

Today fuel is N180 and those who earn their wages monthly from worshipping Baba on Facebook are also suffering the same fate, he said.

The governor’s aide, who also criticised the human rights community in the state for not speaking up against the increase in fuel price, dared a well-known Buhari supporter in the state, Imaobong Akpan, to lead a campaign against the increase.

But Ms. Akpan reacted by asking Governor Emmanuel to call his aide to order.

This is a president that has been the most magnanimous to the welfare of Nigerians, and specifically the governors through the regular and timely release of budget support funds, Paris club refunds, and other social intervention funds meant to alleviate the sufferings of Nigerians, of which Gov Udom Emmanuel, Mr. Essien’s boss is a major beneficiary,” she told, Thursday.

It is on record that Mr. President has been very kind to the people of Akwa Ibom State through the various appointments and other strategic partnerships meant to grow the economy of Akwa Ibom.

The fuel crisis in the country is traceable to deliberate sabotage which I believe the government is addressing and therefore should not be politicised, she said.

Lionel Messi Reveals ‘Debt’ Football Owes Him Ahead Of 2018 World Cup In Russia

Argentina captain, Lionel Messi, has said he hopes football “ends up paying” the debt the spot owes him at the 2018 World Cup.

Messi has lost three straight finals with Argentina in a three-year span.

His national team coach, Jorge Sampaoli, said after Messi’s hat-trick at Ecuador in the 3-1 win in their final qualifier on October 10, that football “owes Messi a World Cup.”

When asked to comment on Sampaoli’s remarks, Messi told FIFA: “Yes, I did hear it, and he said it to me too. I hope football does end up paying me!”

Argentina will face Nigeria, Croatia and Iceland in Group D of next year’s tournament. But Messi says the 2014 World Cup final defeat to Germany is still an open wound.

“It’s going to be there forever,” he said.

“I don’t know if they’re ever going to heal. We’re just going to have to live with it. The World Cup is a very happy memory and a bitter one too because of how it ended, how it all worked out. But it’s always going to be there.”

Messi is, however, glad to get another chance to win that title.

“It was very important because missing out on the World Cup would have been a huge blow, firstly for the squad as a whole and then for me on a personal level,” he said. “I don’t know how I would have taken it. The same goes for the people of Argentina. Failing to make Russia would have been an all-time low for the country.”

How Government Is Spending Recovered Loot – Osinbajo

Federal government is using recovered loots to finance government activities.

A large portion of recovered loot is what is been used by the federal government to finance its various social investment and intervention programmes according to Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo.

This, he disclosed at an event to commemorate the World Anti-corruption Day, where he listed some of such social investment projects to include the homegrown school feeding programme,

growth enterprise and empowerment programme as well as N-Power – “the largest social investment programmes of any administration”.

Osinbajo, represented by Waziri Adio, executive secretary, Nigeria Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (NEITI),

while delivering the keynote address titled, ‘Notable trends in the war against corruption,’ stated that “a large portion of recovered assets is used to fund the social investment projects of this administration.”

“In 2016, Nigeria joined the open government partnership (OGP) and has thus far made 14 commitments aimed at ensuring transparency and accountability in the management of public office and increasing citizen participation in governance.

“Some of such commitments include open contracting (via the ICRC’s PPP contract disclosure portal), technology-based citizens’ feedback, presidential committee on asset recovery,

voluntary assets and income declaration scheme, and the special investigation panel on the recovery of public property.

“The 2016, 2017 and proposed 2018 budgets all have a line for the recovery of stolen public funds. Hence, the recovery of funds is a revenue line.

“The criminality involved in the initial acceptance of stolen funds by institutions in these countries is oftentimes left unpunished”.

“In order to be successful, the war against corruption requires the constant recruitment of stakeholders and partners, particularly from other arms of government and civil society organisations,” he added.

“I hope the issue of stakeholder recruitment and other pertinent issues will form part of your deliberations at the panel discussions still to come.” He said.

3 men in trouble for abusing fish in U.S. men-trouble-abusing-fish-u-s/

Three boaters have been charged with felony after they were caught in a viral video dragging a shark at a high speed through the water in Florida, U.S.

The video of the shark being dragged went viral in late July after a Miami sport fisherman criticised it on social media. Their offence prompted an outcry from the public and some activists which is also seen as “animal lynching”. A Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission news release said 21-year-old Michael Wenzel and 23-year-old Spencer Heintz of Palmetto, along with 28-year-old Robert Lee Benac of Bradenton, each face two felony counts of aggravated animal cruelty. Wenzel and Benac also face a misdemeanour count of taking a shark illegally. Eric Hovland, the Florida Aquarium’s associate curator, said the video made his “stomach flip,” and he described it as “animal lynching.” “It’s flipping and tossing around,” Hovland said of the shark in the video. “It looks like it’s even been roped by the tail. I mean this just wasn’t hooked on a line and accidentally dragged. This was purposeful and tragic.” FWC Chairman Bo Rivard said he hopes the charges send a clear message that this kind of behaviour won’t be tolerated. “As we’ve said since this video and other images came to light, these actions have no place in Florida, where we treasure and conserve our natural resources for everyone,” said Commission Chairman Bo Rivard in the statement. “We appreciate the patience and support of the public as our law enforcement investigators worked with the Hillsborough County State Attorney’s Office to identify a number of serious violations that will be brought to the courts for adjudication. “It is our hope these charges will send a clear message to others that this kind of behaviour involving our fish and wildlife will not be tolerated.” Prosecutors in Hillsborough County are handling the case. “The State Attorney’s Office is committed to holding these men accountable for having engaged in such senseless and unjustifiable animal cruelty. “We thank the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission for their work in investigating these crimes. “We stand with them, along with Florida’s fishing and hunting communities, and all those who cherish our precious natural resources, in condemning the torture of our marine wildlife,” said Andrew H. Warren, State Attorney for the 13th Judicial Circuit in the statement. Jail records didn’t list attorneys for the men. NAN

JAMB remitted N7.8bn to FG from 2016 UTME – Oloyede

JAMB remitted N7.8bn to FG from 2016 UTME – Oloyede
ADEKUNLE
12 DEC 2017
Bwari (FCT) – The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Tuesday said it remitted N7.8 billion to Federal Government coffers from 2016 University and Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME).

The board’s Re

The board’s Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, made this known when a delegation from
National Officers Council of Colleges of Education Academic Staff Union (COEASU) paid a visit to the board in Bwari, FCT.

Oloyede, who dismissed the speculated N5.2 billion as amount remitted to Federal Government during the period under review, said “the board paid in N7.8 billion to Federal Government and not N5.2 billion.”

He said the board would work to ensure that it met the needs of the sector and strive
to sustain education standard in the country.

He called for cooperation from stakeholders in the education sector to further raise standard, saying “let us work together and push government to do the needful so that education would be where it ought to be.

“When we identify obstacles, we could push government to amend some areas
to enhance the sector.

“I do not see why we should have more than four credits before one can get into
college of education, forgetting that it created an opportunity for people like us in the past.

“I assure you that UTME score does not determine the quality of one’s education; it is the environment that makes the difference obvious by segregating institutions.”

Oloyede challenged the officers on the need to officially make a case for National Council of Education, which he said was made up of commissioners of education, to review the number of credits to be attained by intending candidates of colleges of education.

He said the board would not hesitate to work with unions to set up a Task Force that would check irregularities that may cripple the sub-sector.

Earlier, the President of COEASU, Mr Nuhu Ogirima, said that the challenge had
been an obstacle to admission status of colleges nationwide.

He called for review of the current application process into colleges of education, saying “a review is imperative, given the fact that the current application process
predisposes candidates toward university education.

“Notwithstanding the overwhelming preference for admission into university, the provision for college of education as third choice in JAMB sought to obscure the system from others.

“After the selection of the very best from the first choice list, colleges of education are left with no choice in JAMB but the low performing candidates and this does not augur well for the teacher education system.

“The union would, therefore, appreciate if JAMB, without prejudice to her establishment law, explore the possibility of collaborating with stakeholders in colleges of education.

“The collaboration would provide enabling environment that could improve the admission status of the colleges nationwide.”

He announced that the council would soon set up a committee that would come up with memorandum to tackle the issues before the necessary quarters.

The meeting was attended by directors of the board. (NAN)
